How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?

Going to Evergreen the year it opened imprinted me with the excitement and confusion of a new college from a student perspective. This provided invaluable insights as I helped open a new college. In addition, as another Evergreen graduate, Gary Lorentzen (class of '75), and I worked on Kepler's policies, we ensured that Kepler followed many of Evergreen's ideas on student evaluation and overall learning objectives, including abandoning letter grades and developing integrated, team-taught courses. My experiences at Evergreen also made me a strong proponent for soliciting student feedback on nearly all operations at Kepler College.
